Honorary Ambassador 2020

Do you know someone who love the Apple and Grape Harvest Festival and wants to be part of it?

The Apple and Grape Harvest Festival Committee is looking for people to be honorary Festival Ambassadors at the 2020 Festival.

“In the current economic conditions, it was unfair to ask businesses and community to take on the traditional fundraising role of the Festival Ambassadors,” Festival President Max Hunter said.

“However, we wanted to keep the tradition of the Festival Ambassador going, so we are searching for people who will take on the role of Festival Ambassador by participating in selected festival events and helping to spread the word about the festival.

“With that in mind, we’ve opened up the role to people of any age, male or female, who believe they can make a contribution to the Festival. ”

A Festival panel will be choose one Ambassador from each of in two age groups:  18 to 35 years and 35 to 90 years.

Ambassadors will need to be available for selected events at the Festival, between 28 February and 8 March and take an interest in being a Festival representative until 2022.

“It will be a rewarding role” said Mr Hunter and added “it is a great role for somebody who is passionate about the Festival or Stanthorpe and both the Ambassadors have the chance to be the face of the Festival and Stanthorpe for 2 years”.

Stanthorpe region residents can nominate themselves as an Ambassador or nominate someone else they believe would be suitable for the role.

Download the Entry Form or contact the Apple and Grape Harvest Festival office on  4681 4111 to express your interest.

The Ambassadors will be announced at the Gala Opening Event on Friday, 28 February.

Traditionally each Ambassador is sponsored by a business or organisation that supports their Ambassador in their Festival fundraising efforts.  With our local businesses feeling the pinch with the pressure of drought, the committee have made the decision that the Young Ambassadors Program will be suspended for the 2020 festival.

Young Ambassador Program

Suspended in 2020

The Festival Young Ambassadors is a tradition of the festival - our lovely 'faces' of the Festival, who play an important role in helping to raise funds to keep the Festival financially viable.  In 2020 there will be no Ambassador Program, a decision made by the festival committee as a way that the festival can recognise and respond to the challenges Stanthorpe businesses are facing in the current drought.
